A Marysville man pleaded guilty Monday to an August crime spree that included driving around his town early one morning, peppering homes with bullets.
Corey Dalyn Marquardt, 22, entered the pleas during a brief hearing in Snohomish County Superior Court. Under his plea, Marquardt didn’t acknowledge committing the crimes, but conceded the evidence made it likely he would be found guilty of drive-by shooting, first-degree theft and unlawful possession of a firearm.
Nobody was injured by the flying bullets, which prosecutors said were fired at random into houses and cars.
Under state sentencing guidelines, Marquardt faces nearly 3 1/2years in prison. He is hopeful that his time may be reduced by voluntarily enrolling in a drug-treatment program, Everett defense attorney Mickey Krom said.
Sentencing is scheduled for March 5.
